shinsuke yamaji, designer and owner of vinyl cutting aurora factory plate has devised an innovative method for cutting graphics onto analog vinyl, translating the result into master sounds. through programmed lines and illustrations, the system produces accurate audio from a unique smartphone application by koji kimura. users can cut squares or spirals onto records, or draw with sine waves and sound data files, maintaining the sound quality of the original track.
